More than a dozen White House officials have resigned, including cabinet secretaries Betsy Devos and Elaine Chao. He is also facing mounting calls for immediate removal from office, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatening to bring new impeachment charges if he doesn't resign "immediately." Trump could be the first ever president to be impeached twice.
